School uncertain about the

impact of closing Winters Rd

• By Andrew King

A SECTION of Winters Rd

will be permanently shut to

vehicles to make way for the

Christchurch Northern Corridor

bringing positive and negative

effects for a primary school.

The project will be a four-lane

highway running from Chaneys

Cnr to Cranford St. It aims to

ease congestion in the north of

the city and is expected to be

completed by

2020.

From February

7, the road

in Mairehau,

between property

numbers 137 and

143, will be

closed.

Papanui Primary School is on

the corner of Fraser and Cranford

Sts.

Principal Paul Kingston

(above) said there are positive

and negative effects to the closure.

He said there will be more

vehicles using the Fraser and

Cranford Sts intersection outside

the school and it limits access

options for staff, parents and

pupils.

“But on the upside, there will

be reduced ‘through’ traffic

which often speed,” he said.

“We’ll have to wait and see

CLOSING: The red circle in the photo shows where Winters Rd will close. A tunnel will be

constructed underneath the motorway for pedestrians and cyclists.

PHOTO: CNC ALLIANCE

how driver behaviour changes

to see if any safety issues arise

and work with the appropriate

authorities and our community

to mitigate these.”

He said the project will benefit

the wider community.

A tunnel will be constructed

to allow pedestrians and cyclists

to pass under the motorway

and is expected to be completed

within six months.

The Northern Corridor project

includes the construction of a

new road between QE II Dr and

Cranford St, and the four-laning

of Cranford St to Innes Rd.

The new motorway will bring

an estimated 20,000 extra vehicles

a day into St Albans once

finished.

The city council will put together

a team to come up with a

downstream effects management

plan to identify the traffic issues

on surrounding residential

streets.

The team would then come up

with strategies to mitigate those

effects, which would go out for

public consultation.

Traffic congestion would

become “increasingly severe” in

Main North Rd, Cranford St and

Marshland Rd if the new road

was not built, the city council

said.

FROM

THE

EDITOR’S

DESK News..................................... 3-11

AARON KEOWN has always

been one to think outside of the

square, and on page 3 today he’s

doing it again.

Keown, elected back onto

the city council late last year,

campaigned to do something

about the Harewood, Breens and

Gardiners Rds intersection.

To his credit he is backing up

his campaign by pushing for the

changes in 2017. More than 1700

people signed a petition he set up

pre-election.

To that end he is offering

anyone $100 if they can come up

with an intersection in Christchurch

that has the same issues as

Harewood, Breens and Gardiners

Rds.

He’ll use that as part of his case

to get funding included in the

Annual Plan.

So good on you Aaron for

pushing through with what you

promised. – Barry Clarke

Keown’s $100 intersection

• By Andrew King

ONE HUNDRED dollars is

up for grabs to anyone who

can find an intersection in

Christchurch which has the

same amount of lanes – and

no traffic lights – like one in

Harewood.

City councillor Aaron Keown

has laid down the challenge and

will give $100 to the first person

who can find an intersection

the same as Harewood, Breens

and Gardiners Rds.

“All up, there are 10 lanes that

converge at that point. I don’t

think there is another intersection

like that in the city, that

doesn’t have lights,” he said.

The intersection has been

labelled dangerous by local

schools and residents.

Nor’West News reported

in September that residents,

schools and elected officials all

want a change to the intersection

due to near misses with

school pupils, cars and cyclists.

More than 1700 people signed

a petition set up by Cr Keown

calling for lights to be installed.

It was also the main focus of his

2016 campaign to be elected on

to the city council in the Harewood

Ward.

CHALLENGE: City councillor Aaron Keown has offered $100 to the first person who can find

an intersection like the Harewood, Breens and Gardiners Rds without lights in the city.

PHOTO: GEOFF SLOAN

He is now using the petition

to lobby for money to be set

aside for the upgrade in the city

council’s annual plan.

A draft version of the annual

plan is expected to be finished

in mid to late March and put

out for public consultation.

“There has been

unprecedented interest in this

intersection. I am still receiving

phone calls and emails asking

me what is going on,” Cr Keown

said.

He plans to set up a public

meeting “within the next few

weeks” at the site to find out

what people would like to see

installed and hear more of their

concerns.

“That way we could reduce

costs later down the line

because we have a lot of the

information that consultation

would show,” he said.

City councillor Yani Johanson

attempted to get the $100 by

suggesting Linwood Ave and St

Johns St, but it only has eight

lanes which meet.

KIDNEY SURGERY

A 6 year old Golden Lab called, you

guessed it, LOLA, came to see us for a

referral ultrasound at the end of last year

because she had been urinating “clots”

of blood. She was clinically bright and

alert at the visit but did have a history of

possibly having access to rat bait 7 days

earlier.

The abdominal ultrasound was

performed by Catherine and she found

a possible bleed into the left kidney but

no sign of tumours anywhere else. A

wide range of blood and urine testing

was performed, including clotting times

in case of rat bait access, and all showed

up very normal, apart from evidence that

she had experienced a recent bleed. So

initially she was discharged on Vitamin

K in case of rat bait and antibiotics. She

seemed bouncy and was of course still

ravenous but a follow up ultrasound was

scheduled for the following week to check

to see if the haemorrhage had resolved in

the left kidney.

She returned happily to see Kirsty the

following week looking great. No further

blood clots were seen in her urine. The

ultrasound of the left kidney appeared in

worse shape – the kidney was increased

in size and still full of fluid – blood?

Specialists were consulted and it was

agreed that a CT scan was needed to rule

in or out cancer.

Kirsty accompanied Lola to her CT

scan. The radiologist noted marked

pathological changes in the left kidney

that resembled a rapidly progressing

primary kidney tumour. No sign of cancer

was seen in the lungs or other parts of

the abdomen. It was decided that she

needed a nephrectomy ( removal of the

left kidney) fairly urgently while she still

essentially well. Her right kidney was

functioning normally ( as seen on CT scan

and via the bloods)and without surgery

her prognosis was probably less than 1

month.

So Kirsty and myself put our hands

up to operate on Lola. A nephrectomy

surgery is not to be taken lightly so we

did our research before attempting the

left kidney removal ( text book reading,

U tube videos, consulting with other

surgeons). We had a blood donor dog,

a German shepherd called Pepper, on

standby in case she lost a lot of blood

or we couldn’t control surgical bleeding.

Open 7 days

e. mcmasterandheap@yahoo.co.nz

www.mcmasterheap.co.nz

My Lola frequently gave blood but since

she’s had a renal tumour removed and

undergone chemotherapy, she can no

longer have blood drawn. It is important

for a clinic to have access to a healthy,

young, disease free canine patient in

the case a blood transfusion is needed.

Collecting blood is largely straight forward

although the donor dog often needs to

be sedated as the collection needle is

large bore and goes into the jugular vein.

The patient must lay very still while we

are collecting the blood. Pepper did an

amazing job and her blood was sent to

the After hours clinic with Lola in case she

required it.

The surgery was a complete success,

and even though there were a few tense

moments during the 2 hour operation,

Kirsty and I were thrilled with the final

outcome. Her left kidney and ureter were

carefully removed and the bleeding

controlled. Georgie did a superb job of

anaesthetic monitoring – not straight

forward at all. Lola woke up brilliantly and

has really never looked back. Her owners

were very thrilled and grateful for the

work our entire team carried out from

start to finish. And the best news being,

the mass in the kidney wasn’t “cancer”, the

kidney was diseased, non functioning and

had a large blood clot present.

Lola will need ongoing monitoring to

make sure the surviving kidney maintains

good health. This will be done by regular

blood and urine testing with her primary

vet in Ashburton. Just like with my Lola,

we are out of the woods but still need to

keep our eyes open for any small changes.

My Lola did have kidney cancer confirmed

so she gets 6 monthly CT scans at St

Georges and 3 monthly blood and urine

testing. Periodically she is fed Prescription

kidney diets but for now her surviving

kidney is holding up well. Long may it last

– my Lola is now swimming and relaxing

up in the Bay of Islands with the family.

Take home message – consult your

vet immediately if your dog passes

clots of blood in the urine. This isn’t

normal.

Has Donald Trump

revived politics?

It seems to be the topic

every media outlet across

the globe is reporting – the

Donald Trump presidency.

While we have seen him

already make controversial

moves like remove the

United States from the

Trans-Pacific Partnership

Agreement and adopt

an archaic, protectionist

approach to trade, the

question still stands. Is a

Trump presidency likely

to improve the awareness

of politics and the importance

of voting?

One of the struggles inherent

with local government

elections is the lack

of awareness or engagement

and the resulting low

voter turnout. In the 2016

elections, only 40 per cent

of Christchurch voters cast

a ballot. For an organisation

tasked with spending

millions of dollars

every year on roads, traffic,

waterways, parks and

collecting rubbish, there

isn’t much of everyday life

that isn’t impacted by the

work overseen by elected

representatives.

Now, while I don’t

propose that our elections

are comparable to the US

elections, the challenge

remains: How do we improve

voter participation

and increase the awareness

of what your city council

and community board do

for you?

I’ve taken a different

approach in the Waimairi

Ward. Firstly, by working

with local residents on key

issues, such as challenges

with urban planning and

development, parking

and traffic issues, and the

under utilisation of our

parks and recreational

areas. Secondly, I’ve been

working to raise awareness

democratic participation.

As a young representative,

passionate about getting

youth involved in not only

our community, but the

democratic process, more

can be done. I challenge

you to talk to someone

under the age of 30 and

discuss the importance

and impact of their vote.

While rubbish collection

and traffic issues may not

be the most appealing

conversations, the point

remains – will the ongoing

controversy surrounding

the Trump presidency, in

the very least, raise awareness

around the importance

and impact of your

democratic right to vote?

School’s pool sharing plan

• By Andrew King

THE YMCA and Fendalton

Open Air School could work

together to keep costs down

once the school’s new pool is

built.

Both have entered into a

memorandum of understanding.

Under this, the YMCA

would take over the running of

the pool and promote it, while

the school will fundraise the

$750,000 needed to build it.

Board of trustees chairwoman

Emily Flaszynski said it was

vital to get the YMCA on board

as the running costs of the

pool would be too much for the

school to pay on its own.

“This way we can do what we

do best. Educate,” she said.

It would mean there will be

a cost to use the pool and Ms

Flaszynski said that is currently

being worked through by the

YMCA.

There would be learn to swim

classes, water safety and coaching

available, Ms Flaszynski

said.

She said with the YMCA on

board, it will become “more

than just a pool.”

“There is about 1800 students

in the surrounding area that can

use it. Locals will be able to head

down and use it and it will really

bring back that community

vibe,” she said.

So far, the school has

fundraised about $390,000 for

the project.

The resource consent to build

has been approved and there is a

preferred tender for the project

already. Once the money is

there, the Ministry of Education

will allow it to be built.

YMCA chief executive Josie

Ogden Schroeder said the

YMCA is thrilled to have the

opportunity to work with the

school on such an important

project.

“The vision and determination

of the school to bring back the

pool will be of great benefit to

future generations of students,

Merivale filmmaker follows Muslim skater

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

ZAHRA LARI could become

the first figure skater to represent

the United Arab Emirates at the

Winter Olympics.

And a filmmaker who grew

up in Merivale is determined to

capture the skater make history

at next year’s event

in South Korea.

From the

moment filmmaker

Niamh

Peren (left), 27,

stumbled across a

low-quality video

of the Muslim figure skater on

YouTube, she instantly wanted to

know more.

“We became like pen pals for

a little bit and I was like this is

too good of a story. She is on the

cusp of doing something really

big,” Peren said.

The filmmaker secured a week

in February to travel to Abu

Dhabi to create a documentary

about the inspiring skater in her

homeland.

“I think it is a really beautiful

and cinematic notion, an ice

skater that comes from the desert.

Like it is quite a brave sport

to choose . . . the chill of the ice

and the heat of the desert is just

worlds apart,” she said.

Peren, who attended St Margaret’s

College, will travel over

with a small film crew, including

London-based cinema photographer

Jeremy Valender.

Valender, who has shot a range

of work for Burberry, Adidas,

Google and Louis Vuitton, is one

of the big names Peren has built

up in her contact list.

Peren has worked with filmmakers

Jane Campion, Garth

Davis and Jonathan Glazer.

The film crew plans to “get to

know” Lari and her home life by

capturing places such as the rink

she trains in, and the desert she

drives past on the way to training

each day.

“Hopefully, she gets into the

Olympics, which will be the biggest

thing ever and we will go to

South Korea and watch her shred

it,” Peren said.

Peren’s career took off

when she first acted in the

film Blue, which won an award

in the Cannes critics’ week section

of the Cannes Film Festival,

when she was 17. She then started

her own video-making while

studying at the Elam School of

Fine Arts in Auckland.

Recently, Peren was signed to

Blink Productions in London,

which specialises in commercial

and music video production, and

she has since been travelling for

her filmmaking.

Peren and her crew need to

raise at least $10,000 to under

raised about $2540 using Givealittle.

She will be supported by

two film companies.

She said people who make

donations will have their name

presented in the end credits.

“I think it is such an important,

huge and beautiful story.

Seriously, in today’s climate, if

we look at the women’s march, it

is really important to be telling

female stories,” she said.

Former St Bede’s student gets career boost

• By Georgia O’Connor-Harding

OLIVER DAVIDSON was going

to study to become a surveyor at

Otago University.

But after achieving three major

feats in the performing arts

realm, the former St Bede’s College

student has decided to take

a risk.

Davidson, of Papanui, will

study a Bachelor of Performing

Arts at Otago University after

winning a $16,000 scholarship.

But, not only has he had his

tertiary fees covered, he was

recently accepted to attend an intensive

singing school in Napier

earlier this month, and has been

chosen to represent the country

at the world championships of

performing arts in Los Angeles

in June.

About 300 people auditioned

for a place in Napier’s IFAC

Handa NZ Singing School and

Davidson was one of 73 chosen

to attend.

But, while the 11-day course

focuses on helping students to

accelerate their skills in singing,

Davidson said what he enjoyed

most was being around likeminded

people.

He said his junior years at St

Bede’s were a struggle with some

of his fellow classmates finding

dancing a “weird thing.”

But he said as everyone grew

up they began to see dancing as

“cool” instead.

“I think towards the end of

my high schooling, it was quite

good. There wasn’t many people

like me, it made me stand out so

I wasn’t just part of the norm,”

he said.

Having started in dance at the

Patricia Paul School of Dance

and Southern Ballet Theatre, his

involvement in the arts began to

go up a gear when he performed

in all three productions produced

by Showbiz Christchurch

last year.

Now, encouraged by his No 1

supporter, his mum, Davidson

will have a crack at a career in

arts.

“Some people were like you

are so stupid going down to

Dunedin to do surveying, why

are you wasting your talent?” he

said.

He is now hoping for the best

outcome for his career from his

upcoming competition at the

world championships.

The competition, known as

the official ‘talent Olympics’ is

renowned for giving scholarships

to schools, such as the New York

Film Academy and the New York

Conservatory for Dramatic Arts.

But for now, Davidson is most

excited about having the chance

to “start over again” in Dunedin.

The buildings had been

In the 1970s, fundraising had

The school has a long

school holidays last week. She is playing at the Margaret Mahy Family Playground.

Zonta garage sale

to boost charities

A GROUP of women have spent

six months collecting items for a

garage sale – with the proceeds

to go to charity.

Zonta Club of Christchurch

South will hold its annual summer

garage sale on February 11

with children’s toys, preserves,

furniture, ornaments and linen

among some of the items for sale

which will be held bordering the

village green on Dyers Pass Rd,

Cashmere.

Club president Sue Clark said

the women have been busy collecting

and making items to sell.

“It is a lot of work but well

worth it,” Ms Clark said.

Members family and friends

have helped by donating items

as well.

“It’s a white elephant sale really,

with a huge array of goods,

all in good order and all donated

to us by friends and families.

This sale is an annual event . . .

and it provides us with a great

start to the year.”

Funds raised are all distributed

to the club’s chosen charities.

“We have a number of very

worthwhile charities which

we support and it is incredibly

satisfying to be able to make

substantial donations to these

groups. Next up on our activities

list will be a visit to the Broadfield

Garden on February 19, and

tickets to this are still available to

the public.”

The Zonta Club of Christchurch

South is part of the national

Zonta network which in the last

four years has donated thousands

of dollars to the Sophie

Elliot Foundation, principally

for the publication and distribution

of the book Loves Me Not.

A copy of this book is given to

every student who participates

in a course jointly delivered by

the Foundation and the New

Zealand Police, and on offer

to all New Zealand secondary

schools.

Mrs Clark says Zonta aligns

itself well with the Sophie Elliot

Foundation because Zonta’s

prime aim is to improve the

status of women worldwide.

The Zonta Club of Christchurch

South is well known for

its annual Zonta Sports Awards

which attract competition from

top athletes and sportspeople

in the secondary schools in the

region.

For all your blind repair and cleaning requirements

The Blind Care Company has been

cleaning and repairing the region’s blinds

for over 60 years. Those six decades

have seen changes in both fashion and

technology. Styles have ranged from

festooned fabric swags to straightforward

and still popular holland roller blinds,

from vertical to horizontal slat systems,

and in every colour or pattern popular

since the 1960s.

Whatever your style, the Blind Care

Company has the expertise to keep your

window treatments looking fresh and

working efficiently. Using only ecofriendly

chemicals, the build-up of dirt,

dust, grease, nicotine and smoke residue

can be removed so that your blinds

smell fresh and are restored to their

original glory. The company can repair

blinds also, having a huge range of parts

in stock. And if you want something

completely new, a great range of blinds is

available for purchase.

The company prides itself on efficient

service, providing a fast turn-around,

and drop-off service is available. 150

blinds per day can be cleaned at this site,

50 per day. That means they will come to

your home or office, remove and clean

St Andrew’s break rowing

record with 16-medal haul

• By Gordon Findlater

ST ANDREW’S College broke

records over the weekend, as

Christchurch’s top rowing

schools continued their Maadi

Cup build up.

St Andrew’s qualified for 30 A

finals – a regatta record – at the

South Island Rowing Championships,

held over the weekend at

Twizel’s Lake Ruataniwha.

They went on to win 16 medals

on Sunday, five of which were

gold. Their first gold came in the

men’s under-19 coxed four with

the schools second boat completing

a one-two in the race.

St Andrew’s also occupied the

first two podium spots in the

boys’ under-17 coxed four. Meanwhile,

the boys’ under-15 coxed

four, men’s under-19 coxless pair

oars and girls’ under-15 coxed

four also came home with gold.

Christchurch Boys’ High

School secured the most gold

medals at the regatta with seven

of their nine podiums resulting

in wins.

They took gold in the under-17

coxed eight, under-15 coxed

octuple sculls, club coxed four,

under-16 coxed four, novice

coxed eight, under-15 coxed eight

and open coxed eight.

There was also success for

Rangi Ruru Girls’ School which

came away from the regatta with

eight medals, five of which were

gold.

St Margaret’s College managed

seven medals, while Christchurch

Girls’ High School secured

three golds in their five medal

have been out and about visiting

much the new office has helped

them.

I’ve enjoyed watching progress on

the Western Belfast Bypass over

the summer break. It’s going to be

a game-changer for commuters,

delivering shorter travel times and it

will free up our local roads. A reliable

roading system will support our

lucky to have the airport right on

Hello

New location for language

school in Burnside

Christchurch Mayor Lianne Dalziel cutting

the ribbon at the opening ceremony, with AEI

principal Kathryn Thorne on her right, and guests.

Specialist English language school, the

Alpha Educational Institute (AEI), moved

into new premises at the end of 2016,

with an official opening by Christchurch

Mayor Lianne Dalziel. Now located in the

Canterbury & Technology Park in Burnside,

AEI offers a range of programmes for children

through to adults, and a sister company,

Alpha Homestays, arranges home stays for its

international students.

Director of Alpha Homestays and principal

of AEI school Kathryn Thorne talks to Alpha

Homestays co-ordinator Margaret Bray about

the experience of hosting students and about

the new facilities.

Kathryn: Margaret, you yourself have

hosted many students over the years. What

would be some of the stand-out ‘positives’ in

your mind?

Margaret: You learn a lot about their

culture, and you learn that it is not nationality

but personality. It’s the sharing of culture,

food, language and experiences. If you have

children or grandchildren, there is that extra

layer of positive ‘spin-offs’ all round.

Another one of the good things is that you

get to see your own environment through

new eyes. You may have been to places many

times before, but when you are showing your

student around, you get to experience it

through their fresh eyes, and to enjoy it on a

whole new level.

Some of the popular places we have taken

our students to are: Akaroa, Hanmer Springs,

Lake Tekapo, the A&P Show, school fairs, the

Riccarton Market, the Botanic Gardens and

Canterbury Museum, canoeing on the Avon,

Willowbank Wildlife Park, and simply joining

in a family BBQ or watching the bright stars

in our night sky.

Students adjust at different rates and have

to be supported through that, but generally,

they love to become ‘part of the family’. Many

of our students have stayed in touch over the

years and even revisited us.

Kathryn: What is special about the new

AEI school premises where Alpha Homestays

has its office now?

Margaret: It’s amazing – light, bright and

breezy. Beautiful grounds – lots of windows

and surrounded by trees. There have been

many positive comments from the students

and teachers and it’s convenient for Alpha

Homestays to be sharing the AEI campus. It’s

very exciting to be located in this Business

and Technology Park, with a lot going on

around us. And our opening ceremony with

our Christchurch Mayor, Leanne Dalziel, was

a fantastic occasion!

A student enjoys meeting a new friend.

Canoeing on the Avon is one of the many

activities students can participate in.

Alpha Educational Institute

(AEI) has now moved to

19 Sheffield Crescent, Burnside!

Alpha Homestays has also moved and works closely with

AEI. We are looking for good, new, welcoming homestay

families in this area for our International Students!

We are especially interested in homes that are near to the No 17;

No 120; No 125; No 29 or the Purple Line Bus routes.

You will be well paid for this service!

Keep looking when

you are cooking

• By Mark Thomas – Fire Risk

Management Officer

LAST WEEKEND’S wild weather caused

a few issues around town with our fire

trucks attending a number of trees and

lines down.

Scariest for the occupants was a house

in Marine Pde where a power pole ended

up hanging over the building. Evacuation

of the home was the only option until the

power authorities could stabilise things.

THe old pot on stove scenario was

evident again this week with one of the

incidents being at a school. I’m not going

to say where because I don’t want to

embarrass the staff but it’s so easy to see

someone putting the pot on and then

rushing off to do some of the thousands of

jobs needed to do and simply forgetting.

One third of all structure fires start in

the kitchen. The saying: ‘Keep looking

when you’re cooking’ never dates.

One of the most frightening events for a

young mother is accidentally locking your

children in the car. We are quite often

called to assist in breaking-in and mum’s

distress is commonly picked up by the

child who becomes equally unhappy.

Not so on the Rapaki Track on

Wednesday, where the trapped baby was

still smiling when Woolston’s crew finally

broke into the car. Mum smiled then too!

A late night cigarette outside saved a

Not ready to buy?

late model car from major damage in

Avonhead in the early hours of Thursday

when a smoker noticed, well, smoke!

Smouldering electrics would probably

have eventually destroyed the car.

Not often something good comes from

ciggies!

Rent a Piano

CONTINUING EDUCATION

Help your child grow

in confidence

Do your children lack self-confidence, or

perhaps have so much energy that they need

an outlet for it? Development through drama

is the ideal approach to teach confidence and

channel youthful energy while building selfesteem.

been in New Zealand for 35 years. This highly

regarded international programme helps

students aged 5 to 17 fulfil their potential by

acting confidently and speaking clearly. Our

unique, self-development programme helps

achieve invaluable life skills. The confident,

articulate child makes friends easily, accepts

challenges and new directions. Confident

children become well-rounded adults.

Our fully qualified teachers are trained in

the Helen O’Grady

Drama system, they

ensure each child is

encouraged and valued

in a warm, positive

learning environment.

Lessons stimulate and

motivate students

HEALTH & BEAUTY

Offering a

full range

of dental

services

Merivale Dental Group staff, left to right, David

Rowley, Megan Smith, Jenny Kim, Petria Waitzer.

A fortnight. One month. Two

months. How much time and

patience does one need to have

a porcelain crown or a ceramic

dental restoration nowadays?

At Merivale Dental Group, they

acknowledge people have hectic

lifestyles juggling work and family

life leaving little time for multiple

dental appointments.

CEREC same-day dental crowns

and implants are the most modern

technology available in dental

restoration. They are one of a few

practices in Christchurch being

able to manufacture and place

ceramic restorations by taking a 3D

digital scan of your teeth. The tooth

is then designed on clever software

and sculpted by a milling unit which

allows them to produce beautiful,

strong porcelain restorations in

the one appointment. This means

no temporary restoration and no

second visit for their patients.

Merivale Dental Group has

the latest and state-of-the-art

Omnicam CEREC unit. Dentists

David Rowley and Jenny Kim

believe that the advances of digital

dentistry are the way of the future

and pride themselves in producing

strong long lasting restorations.

Behind all beautiful, swift dental

restorations should be firm healthy

gums covering the pearly whites.

When it comes to focussing on

having fantastic oral health, it is very

easy for us to forget gum health.

Megan Smith and Petria Waitzer

are the friendly and experienced

dental hygienists at Merivale Dental

Group. They are both passionate

about prevention and treatment

of gum disease and provide gentle

but thorough removal of plaque,

stains, and tartar build-ups. Since

prevention is better than cure, they

are dedicated to helping you perfect

your homecare technique and aid

in sorting out any problems before

they get worse.

Merivale Dental Group offers

a full range of dental services

and they would love to help you

out with all your dental needs. If

you would like more information

on their friendly practice, please

check out their website at www.

NOR’WEST NEWS

NOTE: The owners have just had a subdivision report completed by a Registered

Survey Company, a Geotechnical Report completed by Registered Consulting

Engineers and a subdivision application has been submitted to council. This is

currently in the approval process and applies for two separate titles to be issued for

the property. Title 1 - House on 1023m 2 and Title 2 - Separate section of 1000m 2 .

On a 2023m 2 section which occupies a prime position right in the heart of the bay. Enjoy

the space and the stunning harbour / hill views. Last on the market in 1948, this was home

to one of our much loved local identities. The comfortable family home offers three double

bedrooms and open plan living opening to wrap-around verandah. You will be super cosy

in winter with the Kent Duo wood-burner and heat-pump, plus a still operational “chippy”

in the kitchen. There is easy, sealed access to a detached double garage plus a single

carport and woodshed. This is a golden opportunity to own a good chunk of the bay right

at its centre. Spread out and keep the whole half acre (2023m 2 )for yourself, develop into

a beautiful garden or just keep as real country space for the kids to romp. For a gardener

it is a blank canvas, an additional way to enhance the future value of this property.
